Tim Hortons Deploys New Volvo Electric Trucks

By: Jag Dhatt

The name Tim Hortons invokes great pride and memories for many many Canadians. And now, the coffee giant will be using Volvo newest VNR electric trucks to deliver their goods. Following similar initiatives by Loblaw and Coke Canada, the largest restaurant chain in Canada becomes the 3rd commercial giant to use Volvo’s electric trucks.

In January, a key hand-off ceremony was held at the Tim Hortons Regional Office in Langley, BC. Key officials at the ceremony included Steve Woodward (Volvo Trucks Canada), Jas Singh (RBI), Josh Godly (RBI), Katrina Paduch (RBI) and Michael Oliveira (Tim Hortons). Invitees to the event had the opportunity to enjoy refreshments and take a ride in the Tim Hortons branded Volvo VNR electric truck.

“As we celebrate the deployment of these cutting-edge electric vehicles into the company’s fleet, we are confident that the positive impact on both its drivers and employees will be felt for years to come,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president, Volvo Trucks North America. “This marks a significant stride towards a sustainable future, and we are honored to be a part of Tim Hortons’ commitment to innovation and environmental responsibility.”

The zero-tailpipe emission vehicles are the first Class 8 battery-electric trucks in Tim Hortons’ fleet and will support the company’s sustainability targets, operating out of the distribution centres in Guelph, Ontario, and Langley, British Columbia.
